    Now this would make the debates interesting and Ann Coulter very happy.

    However, I think he's too green, and haven't we just gone through that for almost three years? If they really need someone else, keep working harder on Jeb Bush.

    Well at least it wasn't "GOD damn", this time so congrats. So I take it you like Jeb a bit! And similiar to what you just stated over in the bar fight thread - Jeb Bush is Jeb Bush and his own man. He's not George Bush.

    True, but outside of Jersey? How many folks are aware of that?

    I think a big problem for him is appearance. True, he's not quite as big a guy as William Taft at over 300lb, but Chris Christie looks unhealthy carrying the weight he does. Can't do that today in the TV age. Appearance does matter.

    You can sense whatever you want. It's a free country. I sense folks are getting even more satisfied with the field than they were in August, when this poll was taken.

    If there is any panic, it should be in your ranks. Most of your compadres have enough common sense to stop the bravado. Your tone does nothing but encourage some big time gloating down the road that you're not going to be happy about at all.

    Cain has business experience, something Obama never had. Don't get carried away with the competition within the Republican ranks. Once a nominee is chosen, ranks will close and everyone will work towards Obama's defeat. Guess the bravado will be at the max right up to his concession speech.

    Remember that Clinton and Obama battled it out all the way until June 2008.

    Jeb is the dangerous one. If you thought Papa and King George II were bad, Jeb is true evil because he's smarter than both the father and the brother.

    Fair or unfair, his last name is now poison.
    My dog will be elected president before anyone else named Bush.



    I think there may be also the perception that if yet another Bush gets in, it will look more like a dynasty than a democracy or republic.

    That's an issue, and one I think Jeb is well aware of, but not one that we haven't had before with Harrison, Roosevelt, Adams and the Kennedys as families that became political dynasties.

    Good point. That's one of the reasons I didn't like that Hillary was running.
    Did you vote for GW? Think before answering that....................

    southbeach1500 saidWhile I think Christie is doing a great job in NJ (my sister and brother in law are both public school teachers and they have no problem with him), I too think he's too new and would himself, his state and the country a better service if he served at least a term (or two) as NJ Governor.



    Agreed and Christy himself has said that a number of times.

    Cain was a Fed head. Not exactly elected office, and not exactly the government - kind of quasi-government-quasi-elected. But political nonetheless.

    Really?

    Herman Cain (born December 13, 1945) is an American businessman, politician, columnist, and radio host from Georgia. He is the former chairman and CEO of Godfather's Pizza and a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Before his business and economics career he worked as a mathematician in ballistics for the United States Navy. Cain's newspaper column is distributed by North Star Writers Group. He lives in the Atlanta suburbs, where he also serves as a minister at Antioch Baptist Church North.

    A politician? I didnt say its a bad thing... but the other question that was raised to you, you refused to comment on.. why is that?

    Me too.. this republican crap of 'having' to 'announce' that you indeed are a 'chrisitian' is repulsive and reeks of theocracy.
